"It is truly a work of art. I love it." --- J. Sommers on July 24, 2017.
"I love my red O-ring on my iPhone 7 plus even more than I thought I would, but one color doesn’t seem to be enough, so I have purchased a gold one. This is a great product and easy to install. I’ve never been very good at placing a protective screen, so I do have a few very small bubbles, not enough to bother me. As you come out with new colors, I’ll probably buy more. It’s so easy to take on and off that I can color coordinate any time. I chose the gold this time." --- J. Sommers on August 10, 2017.
iPhone is beautiful, but plastic or rubber cases usually ruin the premium design, just like a diamond hidden in a plastic or rubber package
Vihoo’s Phone Ring is a 2-piece hinged diamond-cut premium aluminum magnetic case for the iPhone. It showcases the natural look and feel of your iPhone.
- The 2-piece hinged structure ensures the perfect fit for the iPhone
- Integrated magnets in the phone ring allow easy on and off.
- Ergonomic cutouts for power and volume buttons provide maximum comfort for thumbs and fingers
- The soft rubber interior lining prevents scratches from ruining the beauty of the iPhone
"This case is perfect! It's simple but solid enough to actually provide some protection for my phone. I've used other ring-like phone cases in the past, but unlike other cases, this one doesn't feel like I can snap it in half when it isn't on my phone. The locking mechanism is also very secure. Overall great case, hoping they come out with the same type of case for the new iPhones whenever they come out." --- Z. on August 4, 2017
The Phone Ring’s precision diamond-cut 2-piece hinged aluminum ring, in conjunction with the 3D full cover glass, blends seamlessly;resulting in a completely smooth surface, allowing iPhone users to feel the iPhone the way Apple designed it to feel.
"This is the best case I’ve ever had. I love it. It is super light, very easy to install and looks slick. Seamless fit the glass protector. Make your phone feel like your phone does not have a case. Having owned almost every iPhone released I am constantly looking for a quality case that protects the phone but isn’t heave (heavy) or bulky. I’ve purchased well over a dozen or more cases and this one is by far the best." --- T. Phelps on July 31, 2017.
"I purchased the black version and it perfectly matches the finish of my iPhone. The metal also has the same feel as the iPhone. It clips on easily and the magnet holding it together is very strong, will not come apart unless you try. I love this case. It is tricky to install the screen protector but the finished product looked great. Great fit and finish! It is easy to position correctly, then with a little pressure the adherence began, drawing itself to the screen." --- S. Kelly on July 31, 2017.
The sleek design of the diamond-cut 2-piece hinged aluminum ring implements integrated cushions and complex honeycomb like structure within structure design using earthquake dynamics (patent pending) to protect iPhones by dissipating energy from drops. An integrated self locking mechanism at the base of the Phone Ring prevents the Phone Ring from opening during point of impact.
Vihoo phone ring with Vihoo 3D full-cover glass screen protector provides the ultimate drop protection
- Repeatedly drop-tested: 7-foot drops onto brick and concrete floors
- Successfully drop tested from 16 foot drop onto hardwood floor
* Military-grade drop only require phones to survive the 4-foot drops.
Vihoo's nano liquid glass protector, which is 600% more scratch resistant than tempered glass, can be applied to the iPhone's exposed rear to provide scratch protection that is 100% transparent
- Protects the aluminum at nano-level while being completely invisible to the human eye and undetectable to human touch
Wireless Charging & Signal
If you’re worried about the aluminum interfering with cellular signal, don’t. Due to the Phone Ring’s 2-piece hinged magnetic bumper design, all of the antennas are uncovered; which results in no signal interference. Current Phone Ring users can attest to that.
